If playing Kyle Walker at Centre Back is the answer, then the question must be "what do we need to do to have a team comparable to those managed by Graham Taylor?"

I'm with Reg, it's a team of bit parts bar Kane.

Have you watched him play there for England or Man City? It worked well against Holland, and numerous occasions for City this year.

We are not going to dominate games like City have done.  Walker is pretty good in the attacking wing back role, a centre half he is not.

I thought Walker looks very good at CB, probably better than at RB.

I would go with...

                Pickford
        Walker Stones Maguire
Trippier                              Young
               Alli       Dier
                  Sterling
            Kane      Vardy

Henderson will play midfield, and should do so with Alli against Tunisia and Panama. Dier in for more stability against Belgium.
 

Dier will have to as I strongly suspect that Alli will manage to get himself sent off in one of those games, the petulant wanker!

According to the OP Cahill is in.  Sessignon is best left out, no good comes from overhyping these kids, let him work with the age group sides.  Remember last summer we did really well at that level..... so it is just possible we might see some fruits from that over te next Euro/WC cycle.

Agree, this was just media over hyping, the one to over hype if one should ever do, would be jaydon sancho at Borussia Dortmund, but not a word about him as he's out of sight out of mind to the media. Let the kids develop without the spotlight on them, the likes of Sessignon, Lookman, Sancho and the other kid at Man City, the Euro's in 2 years time is what they should be aiming for

Phil Foden...   yes, 100%.  We need to see more of these kids take the Sancho route. I think Lookman is in Germany on loan.

Sessignon if possible should go and play for someone like Valencia, Betis or Sevilla.  Someone like Griezmann, shows the benefits of a Spanish apprenticeship.  Coutinho benefitted from a loan spell at Espanyol

I can understand peopleís view points but Ryan Sessegnone isnít some kid who played the odd 5 minutes here and there and a early round league cup appearance.

Heís played over 100 career games...

...and by as far as Iím aware has played in every League game for Fulham this season including the play offs...

Iíd have rolled the dice and taken him

Given that these players didn't feature in the qualifying games I'm not sure taking them would have had much benefit, personally. We should be entring tournaments with a relatively settled side who are vaguely used to playing together rather than throwing in wildcards who may or may not fit.

Get players like Lookman, Sancho and Sessegnon involved after the World Cup and build for future tournaments. Come the next WC they'll still all only be early 20s.

I would like to think this is Southgate's thinking.

10 changes tonight, come on football.

Why do we insist upon using female sopranos to lead the national anthem?  Sounds awful when you compare how classy the tenor singing the Costa Rican sounded.

Why are they playing this at Elland Road?

Are they trying to make Leeds United feel relevant in football terms again

Preparation for playing in front of crowds full of racist scumbags.
